The genesis for Altamus unknowingly started when Wes Reinhardt and Edward Dewey first met in 2005. Working as brokers at one of the regions top commercial real estate firms, they often collaborated in analyzing the market, finding new opportunities and servicing their clients. Both observed an increasing demand for professional property management and noted the limited supply of capable providers. They casually shared a belief that this was an untapped business opportunity. However, they remained focus on other pursuits within the real estate industry.
In 2007, Wes was recruited to become Director of Leasing and Marketing for a privately held real estate company where he oversaw investments in retail, office, hospitality, mixed-use and land. In 2009, Eddie launched Dewey Property Advisors to focus on brokerage services and investment sales. By 2014 they both achieved noted success pursuing their individual paths. Wes had grown within his organization, rising to the position of Vice President and Partner. Eddie had grown DPA into the regions preeminent boutique commercial real estate firm advising clients in a multitude of disciplines.
At the height of his corporate success, Wes recognized that he could no longer ignore his visceral desire to create and manage his own business. He shared his entrepreneurial ambitions with Eddie. That conversation initiated a discovery process that led the duo to recognize property management was still an underserved necessity in the marketplace. The two real estate veterans soon realized the diversity of their experiences coupled with their synergistic skills and mutually shared business values was the perfect foundation to build a management company.
Today, the founding partners jointly drive the Altamus vision and mission. Wes Reinhardt is President and oversees the day-to-day management functions for the company. He is hyper focused on finding operational efficiencies and uncovering hidden value in the assets they manage. Eddie Dewey serves as Vice President and plays a critical role in delivering a platform of management services that consistently exceed client expectations. Together, they have made Altamus a management company that truly believes– Your property. Our priority.
